“People don’t talk about Ace doing his pick-tapping thing. Considering this was ’77, before Eddie Van Halen did Eruption, it's even more mind-blowing”: Eric Johnson, Nuno Bettencourt, and 40 other guitar legends share their favorite Kiss guitar moments | Guitar World

This covers his gear in my favorite era of the stones.
I thought I would share because I love five-watt worlds videos and have been hoping they would do this one for a bit.

The word is Xmas
Sun 60, “Mary Xmess” from "Only" (1993)
(C’mon, this qualifies - they just made a pun.)
This track is such a refreshing blast of #PowerPop - and look who’s here, guitar hero #DaveNavarro from already established #alternative darlings #JanesAddiction, and #RedHotChiliPeppers founding drummer, #JackIrons. So it’s no surprise that It was all over the radio in #Boston, and I recall proudly fishing a promo copy of “Only” out of the bin at one of the used #CD stores I frequented back in the day. (Off your moral high horse - I support artists now by buying, not streaming.) This was #Sun60’s second full-length release, and they’d go on to put out one more, but I challenge you to walk down the street today wherever you are and find one person who recognizes this band by name. This hooky, high energy #guitar rave up should be a classic, not a forgotten track on a forgotten album by a forgotten band.
I do it fer fun. 😊
Maybe you'll like some. 😁
No physical media.
It's all free.
Haven't recorded in about a year. Been eating hot shit just living.
But I have been writing and can put a couple albums-worth of songs together once I get in the groove recording again.🤘

Here's this month's play talk play with Maria Sappho:
In this one we talk about instrument design (including her funky "to be played by mushrooms" instrument), improv structure/form, and the act of communicating (or not!) after performance.
Hello everyone. For #BandCampFriday I'm sneaking in one last 2023 offering: a re-release of a Christmas song myself & my son Leon wrote in 2021, with a B-Side to follow on the 30th of December called Not a Love song.
Both have a jazzy, early-20th-century feel.
The inspiration for Persevere was finding a Christmas card from December 2019 that began "I hope next year is better for us..." and then...2020!
Just wrapped day 4 of practicing 8hrs/day for a gig next Tuesday in Phoenix with some special guests that you do *not* want to disappoint...
My fingers are sore af, but I'm getting there. Only have to learn some of the greatest guitar parts of all time. Will have to modify a few bits because there's just not enough time to get it all into muscle memory verbatim.
Time for a cuppa
I don't care if it's cheating but rehearsing my quatuor classical #guitar part with a recorded YouTube video has been tremendously helpful.
I spotted 2 mistakes I did before.
I found a couple of my dad’s guitar picks tucked away on my bookshelf today. I miss him. Especially lately as I’m learning to play his acoustic guitar.
Mark Knopfler is auctioning 120 of his guitars with 25% of the proceeds going to charity.
This page on the Christies' auction site includes a 5 minute interview of the man with a few of his favourite instruments.
Monday night's #live #ambient #guitar #improv (on an old $60 Univox in Fahey tuning) is now up, and...it is slow. At times it feels geological. If you need a whiff of eternity in your listening, check it out. $0/name-your-price at https://snwv.bandcamp.com/album/music-at-a-distance-189
I think it’s inevitable that if you buy a set of #guitar nut slot files, you will eventually ruin one of your guitars.
The good news is
- Replacment guitar nuts are cheap
- I have other guitars to play
Latest #guitar struggles:
I'm trying to break out of the pentatonic boxes while improvising. It feels like I can already move relatively easy between them, but adding the sixth and seventh notes from the particular mode is still a bit hard unless I'm playing Dorian 😅
I can't yet imagine playing against a track that changes modes/harmony, but the hope is that improvising daily would help me become more confident in it?
I find it hard to believe when famous guitarists say they cannot read music. Or maybe rather: other folks state this *about* them.
Tommy Emmanuel, Jimi Hendrix, Paco de Lucia etc... really?
It's pretty rare I look at #YouTube (because the first step in Starving the Machine is Not Feeding the Machine, right?) but a producer referenced an old track so I pulled it up to remind myself of one of Andy Summers' feedback-laden #guitar moments on a #Police record.
And YouTube confidently tells me I could get tickets to The Police's upcoming show Saturday at 9PM at (checks notes) Rumba Café in Columbus, Ohio. $12 at the door.
You know…I'd think I'd have noticed if they were touring again?

Looking for a guitar teacher in #Albuquerque? I'm running a special for new students through the end of Autumn --- five lessons for just $100!
I also teach much more than guitar; so if you're interested in making music, but you're unsure how to get to that next level, let's talk!
On our last day in Seville, we ran across flamenco street performers -- dancer, singers, and guitarist -- who were pretty good. We saw a flamenco show earlier in the trip, but no photos were allowed.
With the drab street background, B&W images seemed appropriate. Here's the collection ...
#NowPlaying - in which bill orcutt bends the standards on gently freaked & fully gorgeous solo electric #guitar, 2017, the beginning of his improbable & ongoing turn towards accessible(ish) sounds. here he reinvents the wheel, giving new & unexpected gravity to "white christmas," "ol man river," etc. https://billorcutt.bandcamp.com/album/bill-orcutt
Ich hab mal wieder was programmiert! Also eigentlich war es hauptsächlich ChatGPT, das ein paar Lücken im SwiftData-Template von Apple gefüllt hat, aber trotzdem!
TARJA Premiers "Jingle Bells" Music Video
This year, Tarja is bringing the festive season early with the release of Dark Christmas, the sequel of her 2017 album From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas). Utilizing the sound of a grand orchestra and the playfulness of a children's choir, the Finnish solo artist once again...
